Never tool old for Cupcake

Another Lily of the Valley stamp this time one chosen by my Mum for her friends 70th birthday. I love this design & is the first fairy one I've done so the wings were a bit of a challenge but some advice from my friends on the CraftsUprint forum sorted that one out. 

I used plenty of different dies & I also did some embossing using a silver embossing powder I've not done any of this for a long time.

and a close up of that lovely little fairy & her cupcake

I'm entering this design into the following challenges:

Craftwork Cards Christmas Kit

At the Doncaster show in July I bought a Christmas kit by Craftwork Cards in preparation for not being able to do very much due to my hip replacement operation. 

The kit contained a backing papers, sentiments, 20 cards & envelopes & a number of printed stamped designs just ready to colour with my Promarkers. 

Over the last couple of months in between all the birthday cards I've made 13 cards using the kit & there's still plenty of stuff left to make more than the 7 cards left. 

I used inspiration from the Craftwork Cards Gallery for some of the cards. I hope you like the photos of those I've made so far, click on an image to view a larger version:

(I can't get these to display in line for some unknown reason)






This last card has a couple of flowers that were purchased from Dragon Lair Designs

Sorry for not posting

Well guys I've been making Christmas Cards this week I just haven't had time to photograph & load them to the blog yet.

I'll hopefully get it done this weekend but you'll have to bear with me as I've been in a fair bit of pain this week due to me starting to walk on my operated leg. It's not the hip that's giving me gyp it's all the muscles that I've not used for the last 7 weeks which means although it hurts I can't sit still for too long as I seize up.

I think it's going to be slow going as there is so much to think about when walking - things that are generally taken for granted.
